'Sons of Anarchy' Recruits Malcolm-Jamal Warner for Final Season
Sons of Anarchy is adding a Huxtable to the mix.
FX's motorcycle club drama has booked Malcolm-Jamal Warner for a recurring role in the seventh and final season, which kicks off Sept. 9, at 10 p.m. ET/PT with a supersized premiere.
[WARNING: Minor spoilers for season seven of Sons of Anarchy ahead.]
Warner, best known for playing Theo Huxtable on The Cosby Show, will appear in at least two episodes — including the supersized season opener — as Sticky, a member of the Grim Bastards and right-hand man to T.O. Cross (Michael Beach).
Season seven of Sons of Anarchy begins 10 days after Gemma murders Jax's wife, Dr. Tara Knowles, and Juice Ortiz kills Sheriff Eli Roosevelt, with Jax in jail on a parole violation, grappling with his loss. With the club’s support, he sets in motion the brutal machinations that will lead to complete and merciless retribution. Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson are among the notable guest stars appearing.
Warner is repped by Abrams Artists Agency, Warner Management, LINK and attorney Barry Halderman. Other recent TV credits include recurring stints on Major Crimes, where he will also appear in the backdoor pilot for the proposed spinoff, and Community.
Sons of Anarchy makes its final trip to San Diego's Comic-Con on Sunday, July 27 with a panel in Hall H to tout its farewell.
